Stoned Jesus Unleash Exclusive New Track “The Harvest”

Stoned Jesus

Ukrainian stoner rock titans STONED JESUS are celebrating the six-month anniversary of their album The Harvest by releasing the title track, a beast of a song that swells and judders in all the right places and rocks harder than granite. This also marks the beginning of their European tour, starting today in Germany.

 

Discover the 5-minute masterpiece that is “The Harvest” NOW

 

STONED JESUS’ guitarist and vocalist Igor Sydorenko explains the concept of the song: “The Harvest was one of the first songs completed for “The Harvest” LP, but even before I’d shown it to the guys, we kind of moved on with the initial “art-rockish” concept. You may recognize some hooks here and there from another track, that is presented on the final version of the actual album, but it doesn’t make this outtake less significant. In fact, if it wasn’t for The Harvest-the-song, there would never be The Harvest-the-album! So enjoy it here on Classic Rock and keep an eye on our iTunes page to grab it when it’s available for download.”

 

The trio is also getting back on the roads today, and will make a special appearance at some nice European festivals like Desertfest Belgium, Up In Smoke and Soulstone Gathering.

STONED JESUS is a trio hailing from Kiev, Ukraine, which has been one of the biggest bands to emerge on the Eastern Europe stoner scene these past few years. Formed in 2009 by guitarist and vocalist Igor, they first toured Russia and Ukraine extensively, after what they released their highly-anticipated debut First Communion.

2011 saw STONED JESUS kept exploring and changed direction with the “Stormy Monday” EP, but it is mostly with their second full-length Seven Thunders Roar that the band really drew attention, pushing their songwriting to another level. Less doom, more psychedelic, the album peaks with 16-minute long epic “I’m The Mountain”, which remains the most progressive and ambitious song the band has written so far.

After a slight lineup change and a couple of more material released, STONED JESUS returned in 2015 with their third album to date, The Harvest. One thing is for sure: it didn’t leave the fans indifferent, by getting away from the trio’s psychedelic roots to offer a more fun and straightforward approach. From its catchy hooks and compelling vocals to its darker auspices, The Harvest can be seen as a red hot rock’n’roll meteor, probably the most ardent album STONED JESUS has ever released. It will prompt you to jump in the pit asap, and mosh as if it was your last night on Earth. Louder!
